Teacher Programmes 教師活動
Who are our teachers? They are individuals who are committed to and have a strong willingness to learn. Museums should provide resources for those who are eager to learn and, at the same time, serve as a platform for everyone to exchange knowledge and perspectives. This exchange allows us to connect and inspire each other in our lifelong journeys of learning.
M+ Teacher Programmes bring forth thematic tours on the M+ Collection, briefing sessions on our special exhibitions, and school-wide professional development workshops. Emphasising diverse learning experiences in visual culture, the programmes encourage teachers to venture outside their campuses and into new surroundings. They can experiment with learning in a museum setting where minds and ideas collide.
The programmes are open to school principals and teachers and previous experience in artistic practices is not required. More details will be available later via this page.
Teacher Professional Development Workshops
The workshops are structured around two themes: ‘The Multi-perspective Thinker and Learner’ and details for theme two will be available in the second half of 2023. The two workshops address the role of the educator and are designed for school-wide participation. Participants are encouraged to explore the museum in their own ways and pace by engaging in activities that would best suit their preference while learning in a museum setting.
This programme can be included in the Continuing Professional Development programme. Participants may apply for a certificate of participation if needed. Workshops are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

There is often more than one answer to a question in life. The museum is an open environment where different perspectives and mindsets coincide, and everyone can freely engage in different ideas in their own ways. Our sparks of creativity make the museum more than a place to collect and exhibit works of art.
This programme follows the theme of multi-perspective thinking. It consists of the Creative Interpretation Tour and the Monoprint Workshop. Participants will join museum educators and local artists to think unconventionally and beyond the norm. They will reflect on their perceptions and feelings and be ready for new experiences that lie ahead.
As a lead-in to the activities, a writing session will guide participants to instinctively write down their thoughts after viewing an object from the M+ Collection. The responses will be added to a range of interpretation, turning them into material for future museum tours. In the next activity, M+ Educators will invite participants to take an arts quiz, which will suggest an M+ Collection object from for the participant to visit. A customised exhibition guide will be available, with which participants can explore the M+ Collection from a new perspective. Participants may also visit The Cabinet, a space consisting of forty movable panels, with M+ Educators to share their thoughts on the collection through an interactive digital game. After the activities, local illustrator and artist Kinchoi Lam will invite participants to his Monoprint Workshop, where they will make their own prints using simple tools.
Learning and exploration extends beyond the traditional gallery experience. This programme prompts teachers to ponder questions to which there are no standard answers.
The participants’ willingness to learn helps enrich the museum’s collection and curatorial expertise. Their exchange with museum educators and artists brings forth deeper questions—what can we learn at the museum apart from what it intends to teach us? We believe that if we are willing to ask questions and respond without drawing on existing knowledge both inside and outside the museum, it will foster multi-perspective thinking throughout our learning community.
